Nineteen worldwide news articles with a more in-depth report about
President Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, the city’s history and why
moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv is such a significant event.

Where appropriate, stories feature relevant background and history.
Our text is written and edited in an easy-to-understand style. The aim
is to encourage students to become more interested in, and more aware
of, international news and current affairs.

Articles featured reflect no political or religious bias. Stories are
reported factually and every attempt is made to feature all sides of
any situation in which opinions differ.

Several issues prevent many students from taking an interest in
current affairs: number of news outlets, presentation, article
selection, and language are all examples.

As "the news" is perceived by many younger people to be adult
territory, it’s easy for them to think it irrelevant.

These easy-to-read articles are also popular with teachers who
instruct ESL / EAL / ELL / EFL students
